Curated Tweets from Today's #hcsmca Tweetchat

Today's #hcsmca tweetchat was titled "The Social Media Tools You Use - How and Why?" I thought this was an interesting topic so I've curated the tweets from this chat. Note that the hosts of this tweet chat maintain a historical record of their chats using a Google document

Note: I obtained the tweets from this #hcsmca chat using @Symplur's tweet transcript feature. Apologies for the format. I slammed this together in 10 minutes - you'll get the gist of it all.

T1: What social media platforms do you actively use? How and why? 
cmaer
T1 Twitter, twitter and twitter - for all the good reasons .... and when I can get motivated, blogs. 
hivedan
T1: Twitter for healthcare news for our community.
cmaer
@colleen_young @Kevin4Quality T1 I switch back and forth btwn Tweetdeck and Hootsuite but prefer the look and feel of Tweetdeck 
meredithgould
@hcsmca Racing out for #acupuncture in a bit but dropping by to comment. T1: Twitter, IG, FB. 
etreatmd
T1  For eTreatMD I use Twitter, Facebook & LinkedIn - each has a slightly different focus, tone & kind of engagement.
anetto
T1 Pinterest for '40s book covers and OT items, Blogspot for blogging, Twitter all the time, Facebook because it's there. tchatio 
thebellavita
A1 Use twitter & linkedin for industry news, updates, research. Use other outlets to reach & engage w/ potential and past clients 
cascadia
T1 - twitter for mass communication, linked in for professional engagement but in person events like #medx are critical 
meredithgould
@hcsmca T1 Periodically review for myself and counsel clients to review who and where audience(s) are, then tweak platform use. 
quintepediatric
T1: Use - twitter, FB, Instagram, Pinterest, web/blog (still social, right?). Have also Google+, snapchat, Foursquare, tumblr 
etreatmd
T1(b)  I also manage the channels with Hootsuite & use a variety of content sources. Twitter has the best conversations so far.
cmaer
T1 Have just started (really just started) to explore using Periscope 
etreatmd
T1(c) I think LinkedIn has potential for good discussions. Not sure about G+ for health issues? 
colleen_young
T1b: Has anyone else tried Periscope? 


hcsmca
T2: What social media platforms have you tried and abandoned? Why? 
cmaer
T2 Google+ has proven a dud for me. Maybe just too many platforms to work on 
cascadia
T2 I have stopped using social media behind “private walls” that use my content to sell ads 
cmaer
T2 Have also almost abandoned the ballpoint pen. My writing is proving too illegible these days. 
anetto
T2 Have dropped or not really tried many tools. The sad remains are the regular emails to get me to come back 
cascadiachat
T2 1st step should be a communication plan, identify your audience, figure out where they are, go there 
colleen_young
@anetto T2 Good point. Has social media reduced anyone email numbers?  Not mine.
etreatmd
T2  Personally I pretty much gave up on G+. But I love hangouts. Very powerful combination = Hangout + Tweet Chat
anetto
T2 Actually I am more audience than broadcaster. Not sure of audience 
hcsmca
T2b: Do you delete your account from social media tools you abandon? 
cmaer
T2(b) Often don't get around to deleting account. Just keep getting those sad followup emails referenced earlier 
anetto
T2b @hcsmca For all I know I still have an account on Wellocity 
hivedan
T2b: Don't but probably should. @hcsmca 
hcsmca
T2c: Are social media blocked where you work or get health care?  https://t.co/dG3oHQHpYh
atayraco
T2 I manage to get as far as unsubscribing from their email updates but don't get around to cancelling any accounts #probablyshould 
anetto
T2b Sometimes go back to abandoned sites and don't know the password 
kwotanowicz
A2b. Yes. Account and all content is deleted 
quintepediatric
T2c: Not blocked, but self-monitoring remains one of the most critical tasks. 
trishpaton
A2c Not blocked here but have worked in places where they are. Terribly annoying/ cause delays. 
cmaer
T2(c) Is anybody's organization still blocking SM accounts for anything other than pure IT security concerns? 


hcsmca
T3: Are you typically an early adopter or do you wait and see? 
hivedan
T3 I'm totally a wait and see guy. Adding one more thing to my day is always stressful. @hcsmca 
cmaer
T3 Early adopter if professionally required and if I feel an affinity. Otherwise like to see how its going to play out first. 
anetto
A3. It depends on who is asking. Not early adopter to Twitter friends. A rocket compared to non Social Media people 
jillianailsa
@hcsmca T3 - I wouldn't call it wait and see - so much as prioritizing what we know works. Esp. in environments w/ limited resources.
colleen_young
@HiveDan T3:I too wait and see. A new platform is only as good as the people who adopt it, but that needs early adopters too. 
kwotanowicz
A3 I'm a wait-and-see'er. Like someone else mentioned, need to know if it will be worth my time & energy 
quintepediatric
T3: Early explorer. Adopting depends - security, easy of use, other users, potential uses... 
duckdeux
THIS - RT @anetto: A3. It depends on who is asking. Not early adopter to Twitter friends. A rocket compared to non SM people 
etreatmd
T3  I don't adopt early, but rather check out early. I experiment for practice use. If I see potential I play with it a bit & decide
trishpaton
T3 Generally an early adopter. Especially if it sparks something in potential, an area I've been thinking about. 
anetto
T3 @eastgeneral is open to staff using Twitter 
duckdeux
T3: early adoption also hard if you don't have colleagues to experiment/discuss with.

T4: Are you more a text or graphic person? How do you mix the two? 
cmaer
T4 Text person in a graphics world. 
hcsmca
T4: Are you more a text or graphic person on social media? How do you mix the two? 
cattoyoriginal
T4 I used to be more text. Now i'm more appreciative of mix of graphics & text. But still prefer more text than empty white space 
anetto
T4 Text, but graphics are more compelling. Every blog post has pictures at least 
hivedan
A4 Such a good person. I love graphics but text is simpler. @hcsmca 
cmaer
T4 Speaking of which, anyone have experience with Graphic-heavy email newsletters vs. Headlines + text versions? 
jillianailsa
@hcsmca T4 - How often do we get a choice when graphics are king? I find myself paying attn to the ever changing FB algorithm. 
etreatmd
T4  Text & Image together can communicate effectively -the image often ads a personal emotive aspect that's attractive. Risk = detail
anetto
T4 I like that @hiveDan name - It's a graphic piece of text 
etreatmd
T4 (b) I think it's important when using images in a serious context that they add value - not just function as click bait. 
hivedan
Great answers to T4 shows how flexible graphic/text need to be to meet the application. #hcsma 
duckdeux
T4 that said, all text better than poor graphics/photos! 
trishpaton
T4 I really like text, find infographics very helpful. But hard to do well. Also looking for good platforms to assist in building 
colleen_young
@trishpaton T4 I have a few good platforms for infographic building. Names escape me but will share post chat. 
colleen_young
Coming up to T5 for the final stretch... 


hcsmca
T5: What social media habit do you enjoy or would recommend to others? 
cmaer
T5 Using Twitter continuously except when sleeping. (almost kidding) 
cmaer
T5 Although if I can shut myself out of my hotel room in the Philippines while asleep I can probably tweet as well. 
anetto
T5 Really enjoy looking at new people's tweets, finding new links and topics, seeing if they resonate with anyone
